Health Care at Home! DO NOT MISS
Wednesday, April 24, 2019 · 10:45 AM - Noon
NOTE THIS EVENT HAD TO BE CANCELLED DUE TO UNFORESEEABLE REASONS. WE WILL TRY TO SCHEDULE IT TO A LATER DATE.
We will host Dr. Alicia Arbaje from the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology in Johns Hopkins University, who will give a talk on home and community based care on Wed 4/24 starting at 10:45 in ITE 459.
As we know, the elderly population with multiple chronic conditions is constantly growing in size and percentage in the US. Home care is a promising area to focus on because of the possibilities to reduce costly hospital admissions and emergency room visits for the elderly and to improve their health and well being. On the other hand, it is a truly interdisciplinary and complex problem including various components from the social determinants of health to clinical care to technology adoption.
Please join us on Wednesday and feel free to circulate the flyer (attached) within and across the colleges, departments, and centers.
